Coping with Kids going to School
Posted 13 February 2013 - 10:03 PM
So hi everyone!
Im just looking for some help.
I feel totally lost and alone since my baby started school. The two most precious things in my life, the job I have known for the past seven years has been taken away from me for majority of the day and all week.
I come home from school drop off thinking of all the things i could do at home. finish painting, start scrapbooking again, clean, organise.... there are so many thing I could do... but I get home and the house feels empty, i want them home with me and i feel myself getting more and more upset.
Has anyone else found it this hard to let go? What did you do to stay sane?

Fill your days, keep busy, stay away from home if that's setting you off, sound off to us all you want. I don't know what else. Sorry.
Remember they are still your babies and they still need you.

I think the suggestion about canteen duty or parent help could be good too. Or perhaps you might be able to do school banking or book club or something.
I know it's really hard but as a teacher I would suggest to you to try as hard as you can not to show how much you are missing your daughter. I've had numerous poor little poppets crying into my trousers when on playground duty this week about how much they miss their mummies. It's almost without fail the ones with the sad mummies at drop off time.

I'm in a slightly different situation because we are about to move interstate so I'm very busy organising that. But once we move and are settled again I intend to fill my time with volunteering at school (I do canteen plus reading at our current school) plus a part time job. I'm a freelancer working from home so I fit my work around the kids' school hours. If there is any spare time left I might look at doing some other volunteer work.
They still need their mums, you just get a break from each other for a few hours each day
